Members Capabilities Add-ons in Membership 2 Pro not working


I have tried enabling the Member Capabilities Add-ons>Details>Advanced Capability protection and then under Protection Rules>Capabilities>Capability>activate plugins as well as Protection Rules>Capabilities>Capability>switch_themes. It did not work at all. When the members log in to the dashboard there is no where they can see the Appearance tab or Plugins tab to switch or activate.

Please advise how I can enable members of a paid membership level to activate plugins and switch themes.

    Hey Esther,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    To manage Themes and Plugins users require manage_options capability as well, but this capability can give quite a lot freedom to users so it's actually removed from M2 available capabilities.

    What you can do is install plugin like User Role Editor and create new role that will have capabilities to change plugins and themes as well as manage_options capability.

    After that in Membership 2 > Add-ons open Manage Capabilities add-on and disable "Advanced Capability protection" option.
    Go to to Membership 2 > Protection Rules and select your new role to be assigned to desired membership.

    Hope this helps :slight_smile:

    Best regards,
